Inhabit Film Is The Creative Insight You Need
Inhabit is a film project by Wellington film-maker Josiah Watson, focussing on New Zealand artists and residents producing work from different parts of the country. Featuring Paul Melser, Fleur Sullivan & Sam David Smith it contains short snippets of their craft each discussing their why's and backgrounds. Design and Art Direction was by Jeremy Hooper who was also nominated for the TDK 2017 Awards on this project.
"Inhabit provides an insight into New Zealand artists and residents producing work from different parts of the country, where they call home. Inhabit explores the collaboration between the artist and the land, whether that be through adding to or extracting from the landscape, the end outcome is going to be amalgamation of both parties, you can’t have one ingredient without the other. The project examines to what extent the artists are tied to where they inhabit, while also focussing on the creative process of each person and their own individualised methods of forming their work. In addition, recounting personal stories that have shaped who they are and the way they approach their work, describing the evolution of events that led them to where they are now and where they see themselves going. The project spans over film and printed matter." - Josiah Watson
